A good understanding of strategic analysis and decision-making and the links between these and finance enables all managers at every level to make better strategic decisions and achieve improved performance.
This highly interactive seminar has been designed to build on the theoretical framework by developing the practical tools and techniques for analysing and evaluating strategic alternatives and making strategic financial decisions.


  • Develop strategic thinking, and use the strategic management process to develop missions and objectives and carry out strategic analysis and decision-making
  • Forecast financial data using various Excel® models
  • Understand the structure of the income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement, and analysis of the cash operating cycle, for improved financial performance, and better management of working capital and cash flow
  • Identify the alternative sources of finance and financial (or capital) structure, and evaluate the models of optimum capital structure and minimisation of weighted average cost of capital (WACC)
  • Use the technique of discounted cash flow (DCF) for capital budgeting and evaluation of capital project investment, using net present value (NPV), internal rate of return (IRR), equivalent annual cost (EAC), and the profitability index (PI)
  • Use the techniques of uncertainty analysis and risk analysis and develop appropriate risk management tools of insurance and hedging of interest rates and foreign currency exchange rates.
